    Spaceship 2 amphibian

    What is the general thought about such a configuration. A liftingbody with a close coupled t-tail. I would think that it might suffer potentially from deap stalls at high angles of attack do to blanking of the horizontal stabilizer. Also as the angle of attack increases, the fuselage would be...

    How wide for a side-by-side?

    My design is for a 3 seat/semi staggered 138cm 54.5” wide at the hips. The canopy does bulges out slightly to allow for a few extra inches elbow room on either side. It should be cosy inside with all seats filled.

    David, thank you for the good write up. Hopefully Boeing will be able to get the aircraft back into compliance and into into the air again.

    Boeing - Design Issues...

    Okay, can we please dispell the notion that US pilots are somehow superior to pilots worldwide. All over the world you will find good pilots and not so good pilots. Boeing lied and coerced the regulator to push though shotty engineering. Regulators worldwide have now realised that the aircraft...

    Rutan Ski-gull

    Here are some screenshots I took while watching the video. I think it's safe to say that this Rutan design is not going to be a canard.

    Roadable aircraft

    If you where to built a flying car with the wheels-CG location similar to that of a car, It is my understanding that the aircraft would not be abel to rotate during the takeoff roll. Or at least need much higher rotation speeds to overcome this. i.e. the aeromobil II or terrafugia proof of...
